I am a drummer available for studio sessions and live gigs. I offer recording services from my own studio or at a studio of your choice for recording drums. I have pro gear including several drum kits, snares and cymbals to choose from. I am very comfortable with a click track or without. I am on time and easy to work with.
HitMakerDrums was on time. He had rehearsed the Mp3s that I had given him and was prepared when he arrived. Total professional and very knowledgeable. Great job and would highly recommend!

What to Expect
If you use my (link hidden) site for recording you can expect a creative experience throughout the entire process. Professionally recorded drum tracks will be delivered to you up payment and completion of the project in a timely manner.
If you hire me as your live or session drummer you can expect me to not be on time but early to the gig, rehearsed and ready to play. I can provide my own drums for whatever your music requires or we can work out arrangements for drums at the gig.
I am a confident drummer and musician with a keen ear and always value input from the client. I strive to make working with me as comfortable as possible. I look forward to opportunity to serve you and your music to the best of my ability.
My name is Kyle Denney and I will be the drummer for your session. I am a graduate of Musicians Institute in Hollywood Ca. While attending M.I. I studied with session greats Steve Houghton, Ralph Humphrey and Joe Porcaro, ranging in styles from Jazz, Fusion and Latin to Rock and Pop. After graduating MI I spent time recording and playing in LA in a number of bands. I eventually landed back in my home state of Texas to continue recording and performing in Austin and Dallas. While in Dallas I received my degree in Audio Engineering from Cedar Valley College.
With many years of experiencing drumming for live bands, recording drums in the studio both behind the drum kit and as audio engineer, it was time to setup shop for myself and build my own drum studio. Here in my studio I can create a consistent drum sound. I am playing on my drums in my studio on the gear that I know best which ultimately offers you a better product and keeps your production costs down. Setting up drums and getting sounds can take hours. Hours that you spend a great deal of money on before you even get to lay down tracks.
At Hit Maker Drums, the drums are setup, mic’d and ready to go, saving you time and money. But if you are working in a studio of your choice I can travel.
Bottom line…These are your songs, your works of art and it is my job to give you, the artist the best possible drum tracks.
I look forward to the opportunity to collaborate with you.
